It just takes my son about 10-15 minutes to complete his daily page. A particular phonics rule is practiced several days in a row which works well for us. I also like the fact that some of the pages incorporate Bible verses.
Really good book for the first thing to warm up with during home school. It's simple, repetitive, and not intimidating, but really enforces the mind to think about the phonics rules. Using it for an 8th grader who got lost in the system and has to review the simple things that were supposed to be taught in elementary school.
I've used the Apples Books with two high school students. Great books for older students struggling with spelling. I like the reinforcement of ideas and spelling rules in the low stress, self-directed, bite-sized lessons. I've seen improvement in their spelling! Highly recommend.
My daughter needed a good review of phonics for spelling and language rules, Apples was it. We finished the first workbook and will begin this one in her junior year. Each lesson takes about 5 minutes to complete. It is a great product to begin your school day.
Thank you for Apples! This is a straight forward and easy program to use. Our kids love it and don't complain about Spelling anymore. My daughter wishes there were more than two books. She has said many times that Susan Kemmerer should publish books on other subjects. Great for struggling and non-struggling spellers alike.
